"WTF?" I went when:

COPYING

au88x0_a3d.c
au88x0_a3d.h

Ok, those obviously don't belong here, but where do I move them to? From the code I can glimpse it's some sort of driver, and "a3d" hints to audio, but it's completely undocumented...


They should go in sound/pci/au88x0/

Sorry I missed that.

more on the freeze (the floppy/ide hang)

Original boot option

kernel (hd0,1)/bzImage video=ywrap,mtrr,vesa:1280x1024 vga=0x31A splash=silent elevator=cfq pci=noacpi

with that it hangs, so i tried

kernel (hd0,1)/bzImage video=ywrap,mtrr,vesa:1280x1024 vga=0x31A splash=silent

it hangs, but then

kernel (hd0,1)/bzImage

it worked, and now my kernel loves me... dunno if it is a framebuffer or a bootsplash problem.

Well, thats not a good idea ;) i have 5.63 Gb distfiles that i would like to keep.

I've already deleted linux-2.6.3.tar.bz2 and download it again, but portage still says that the digest dosent match.

can someone upload their version of linux-2.6.3.tar.bz2 that works ?

still same problem here... i had the same in rc3 too, if i remove floppy support from the kernel it hangs at the ide part.

Well... In my case it hangs at the ide part with floppy support both compiled-in and module.
Last working version for me was 2.6.3_rc2-love2. With 2.6.3_rc3-love1 started hanging....

The hangs after IDE/floppy, have absolutely nothing to do with IDE or floppy support. Debugging IDE/floppy support won't get anywhere.

No I wasn't. My sound card doesn't deal with APIC well at all(causes system to hang whenever sound is played) so I can't use it. My computer has no problems with ACPI.

are u using framebuffer or bootsplash? if the answer is yes try loading the kernel without that options. It worked for me (as i said in few post above)

So the hang at Uncompressing the linux kernel is related to SMP. The only people who have reported it have enabled SMP.

I have had this problem since the rc3 release and also this one. It is a bootsplash problem (how or why I have no idea).

I have removed the initrd from my grub.conf and all is well (apart from no splash image). I updated bootsplash to 0.6-r7 and and reran the /sbin/splash command but no go.

An odd problem and everything else is hunky-dory (now I can boot it!) :P

[edit]
@Steel, btw, now I am booting without bootsplash, the new logo is very cool :lol:

Actually it doesn't matter anymore. I just disabled APIC in my BIOS and enabled it in the kernel so it'd compile.

Ok, I have just confirmed that the hanging at Uncompressing the linux kernel is becuase of smp. I just built a system without smp and it booted just fine. Now we just have to figure out why.

Sorry, had to miss your post. It actually helped. After disabling bootsplash it runs normally. Thanks!

Elaborating more on the SMP thing. There appears to be a deadlock in smpboot.c. I have emailed Nick about it and am anxiously waiting a reply. I'll keep everyone updated and will probably make a new release when he responds.

On a side note, even with one of my two processors running, love-sources still doesn't lag.

Thanks for the update. I'll download it now and include it in the next release.

The trip for Lovechild's pizza is a lot shorter that steel's. But send all the pizza coming to the US care of bssteph at ...

:)

Anyway, after finally getting the source for it all, love1 have gone beautifully here, as was expected.

steel:
LKML has fixes for the SMP/APIC thing (a missing #ifdef around the offending code block people have mentioned) and rmmod hangs. And a fix for rivafb is coming, if it hasn't already hit.

Depending on when Nick gets back to you, you may want to check those out for the next patch.

I was looking at Nicks patch last night. I noticed the smpboot.c probs, but blew it off as I don't have dual processors anymore or ht. Of course, it is booting and running just fine. Bits of his patch already exist in the 2.6.3-mm1.

Incidently, CK has new patches for the latest kernel... the version is now iso2-cfqionice... Or is this something different? Would any of his other non ht patches be of value to love-sources?
